What follows is the first in a series of videos, which together form the entire album and evening. It was also my mother's 70th Birthday so it was an extra special night all around. #### <center>I also decided to leave the footage raw</center> and let you hear the band live off the floor. What you are hearing is exactly what the audience heard on that night. This song is the second music video I have ever released from my 2013 CD release concert. Ain't Half Bad is the very first song I ever put out to radio in Canada. The support I had for the evening was just simply outstanding and over the top. ![bw-5104.jpg](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmf7vm4MQPhtrRPQ2yRPssuxnd2274uNEnmmKWeUAFhFEo/bw-5104.jpg) #### <center>I have to thank Canadian Music Legend & Canadian Country Music Award winner Johnny Burke</center> for being kind and humble enough to open for a guy no one ever heard of. Sadly, Johnny passed away last year but will live on forever in the songs I will be uploading in the future. Pam Miller for jumping onboard and doing some great songs. ![bw-4978.jpg](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmS3cH943kSpsJq8YdQtZcXWjudxToNFGRwq6wj4KfmoZa/bw-4978.jpg) Also to Stacey Lee Guse for her incredible backing vocals and sparkling personality. Since the recording of this concert Stacey and her husband Shane's band, The Western Swing Authority, have gone on to storm the Canadian Country Music scene winning many awards including CCMA's ![bw-4955.jpg](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmeRweb34Hkxmg5CJeZ2mQ7nEEdMn9ar3fShgXjXS6tbcB/bw-4955.jpg) I will be highlighting the band over the course of the album's release but allow me to list the band members.
